  1. My boyfriend received an email with a file of a clip of a video, I sent it to my email. I'm trying to find out the original time stamp date on it, how would I be able to do that? After I received it I saved it to my phone's gallery.

    Open a window on the directory containing the file
    right-click on the file->Properties
    on the General Tab are the timestamps; Created, Modified, Accessed

    When the file was first saved or newly created by you, the Created timestamp will record the event date

    As it was emailed to you, when you did the Save, the Created date will be that event, NOT that date of origination.

    This is what comes up when I hit the details for the video saved in my gallery

    I have it saved on my phone not a laptop or regular computer so all I can do is go to gallery, click on video and click on upper right hand corner to get details
